john wind monogram bracelet giveaway & a cause

if you haven’t noticed
we’re big John Wind Maximal Art fans around here.
my girls & i love the timeless styles
mixed with the perfect touch of whimsy.
the sorority girl necklace featured back in the summer
& the sorority girl pompom bracelet are two show stoppers
and have such a fun classic appeal.
speaking of John Wind,
our sponsor Carol & Company
has a wonderful offer for you
& an opportunity for you to help support a cause.
i love working with Carol & Company for many reasons
not the least of which
is their desire to give back.
 a portion of their proceeds goes towards the fight against human trafficking.
this week 15% of their sales will go to benefit Wellspring Living.
many of Carol & Company’s customers live here in Atlanta.
the owner wanted to find a way to give back to our community
& Wellspring was her choice!
i’m so excited just to play a little a part in this!!
“1 in 4 women is abused sexually by the time she reaches adulthood. In 2001, Wellspring Living, a 501(c)(3) organization, formed to help survivors of childhood sexual abuse overcome their broken pasts and move towards hopeful futures. Our mission is to confront the issue of childhood sexual abuse and exploitation through advocacy, education and treatment programs for girls and women. Our programs are a refuge for women and girls who need a chance to start over. Through therapy, education, life skills and spiritual renewal, the Wellspring programs give participants recovery tools for the body, soul and spirit. “
so here’s where you come in..
you have the opportunity to win
the JW monogram pom pom bracelet in silver or gold, your choice!!
but first please do the following:
& let me know via comment which piece you love 
2. place an order via Carol & Company
& let me know via comment that you ordered.
remember 15% of your sale will go directly towards benefiting Wellspring!
if you do both, please leave a comment for each so i’m able to enter your name twice!
below i have several items from the John Wind collection featured.
obviously when it comes to accessories
we don’t live under the “less is more” law!
i actually used the pom pom silver initial necklace wrapped twice to feature as a bracelet
& then as a necklace
(giveaway will end friday at midnight
& i’ll post the winner first thing monday morning 🙂

thank you Carol & Company
for being an inspiration to me
for your heart to help others!!!
